Hello, I'm Nori.

thread
Hello, I'm Nori.
Hello.

This is Nori, working at city office in Hokkaido Prefecture, Japan.
I worked at JASSW as an intern four weeks, and had so nice experience.

My job in JASSW was mainly two things. First was to contact with Japanese printing company to make original files, brochures, and DVD that can help us promote America in the Schools (AIS) program. Second was to be a staff at Holiday Celebration Dinner and Auction that held on December 2nd, 2015.

Now, I came back to Japan, but my job as an intern in JASSW has not finished.
Because, my boss Akiko is coming to Hokkaido and trying to spread AIS program!
I hope many students in Japan to watch AIS program, and to take an interest in American culture. I also hope that AIS program help many students in Japan to become interested in studying abroad to gain international business and communication skills.

I looking forward to see you if you have a plan to come to Hokkaido!

Thank you.

Hello from Mercer Island

thread
Hello from Mercer Island

The Japan-America Society of the State of Washington has been undergoing some changes recently, and we want to keep you all up to date as to what we're doing at the office.

The biggest news we have is that we have changed locations. After operating in Seattle for the last few decades, we have found a comfortable home in a space on Mercer Island. The move went smoothly, and we are settling in and getting back to business as usual.

The other news is that we have two new administrative staff members. Corey Nunn and Yumiko Nesheim joined us at the beginning of September, and we want you to join us in thanking them for all their work so far. We are happy to have them on the team.

If you are wanting to get involved in the projects we're doing here at the Japan-America Society of the State of Washington, please visit our website at www.jassw.org. We have our 2014 Holiday Dinner and Auction coming up. This is a prime time for volunteers and donations from members and community residents alike. Please come back frequently to find out what we have going on.

Hello, this is Taka. Thank you JASSW!!!

Hello, this is Taka. Thank you...
Hello, everyone. It is June 2nd 2014. It is so sunny today here in Seattle. And I really like the great weather here these day.

My name is Takahiro Ito. I did internship for 2 months in JASSW so far from the end of March and it will be the last week of my Internship this week which is so sad. I really like Seattle and I wish I could get job and stay longer here,

I joined this internship to get a clear idea of what will I do for job after I go back to Japan when I finish 1 year study abroad program at Seattle.

Through involving various events of JASSW; Annual dinner, booth at Sakura Matsuri, Interviewing Riho-san and James-san as a writer of Story of my life, visiting high school to teach Japaneses as JIS volunteer, I could gain many precious experiences which covers business, education, culture.

Although I don't decide what kind of job will I have in the future, those experiences got from this internship experience will help me to get a better life in the future. I can confidently say that I am a completely different person from the one who started to work here 2 months ago!!

Thank you for reading through this blog and if you are curious about me, please contact me any time, especially if you have any job information or employ opportunity here at Seattle, please let me know because I want to work here at Seattle~.

search me as the key word "Takahiro Ito", "Waseda" on Facebook.

Thank you,

JIS in hedgwood elementary school

thread
 今日の午前、シアトルにあるヘッジウッド小学校の一年生を対象に行われたJISプログラムに参加させていただいた。アメリカの小学校に入るのは初めての経験だったのだが、雰囲気が日本の小学校とかなり違うことにまず気づいた。ものが多く、すっきりした感じはまったくしなかったがクラスとしての個性がかなりと現れていたいた気がした。実際に同学年の違うクラスで計2回行ったのだが雰囲気はかなり異なっていた。どちらかといえば二つ目のクラスの方が落ち着いた感じがしたが、積極性の面ではどちらも日本とは比べ物にないくらいすごかった。とりあえず手を挙げるといった感じであった。
 プログラムは太郎君の学校での一日を中心に日本の学校を紹介するという形をとっており、主に授業以外の部分が多くとりあげられていたが、全体を通して日本の礼儀を重んじる文化、他人を思いやる文化、ものをきれいにする習慣について散りばめられていたと思う。
 礼儀については様々な場面でおこなわれる挨拶を実際にやってみることで子供たちが飽きないような工夫がなされていたが1回教えただけでもかなり覚えがよく。身の回りをきれいにすることは思いやりのいとつの形のようにも思えるが学校全体の掃除を生徒自身が行うことにかにり驚いていたのが印象的だった。
 今回のJISを通じて一番強く感じた日本とアメリカの違いはよく言われるが日本がいかに和を重んじているかだ。ランドセルを背負い、黄色い帽子をかぶりみんなで同じお昼ご飯を食べるということがそれをよくあらわしてる気がした。

Hello,I'm Ryoma

thread
Hello,I'm Ryoma
I'm Ryoma Kawazoe from Tokyo university of Science in Japan.
I major in mechanical engineering and just finished the first grade.

I came to Seattle to visit my family who lives here, and I'm going to stay here for about two weeks.

I'm glad to have the opportunity for this kind of volunteer.

It's my first time to do something like this and I don't know what I can do since I
have only four times to come here including today.

It seems to be harder than I was thinking first, but I'm expecting to learn new things during these days.

Thank you.

Experience of "Japan in the Schools"

thread
Experience of "Japan in the S... Experience of "Japan in the S...
Feb 25th 2014、JASSWのインターンシップ生として、Japan In the School(JIS)のプログラムに参加してきました。今回は私にとって初めてのJISだったのですが、普段けっして経験することがないことをたくさん経験することができ、一日の終わりにとても充実を感じています。今回のJISでは、シアトルから車で1時間ほどのタコマ市にある、Washington High Schoolで授業を行いました。JISではいつも授業に合わせたスーツケースを持っていき、その中に入っている日本特有のものを使って授業を行います。今回のJISでは日本の“custom”, “shopping”, “restaurant”という設定にそって文化を学びながら日本語の勉強をしました。
 
Custom
日本語を習い始めてまだ1年目のクラスで行いました。1年目なのでわからない単語も多く、発音にも慣れていない様子でしたが、みんなとても一生懸命“日本の先生(ボランティア)の家におじゃまする”という実演をしていて、きちんと玄関のドアを開ける音である「ガラガラガラ」や、チャイムの「ピンポーン」までも楽しそうに言っていてこちらが嬉しくなりました。

Shopping
2年目のクラスで行いました。この授業では最後に生徒たちが、郵便局、コンビニ、本屋、おもちゃ屋に行って買い物をするのですが、スーツケースの中に入っているマンガやおもちゃ、おかし、またお金に興味津々の様子で、最後はそのおもちゃで遊んでいました。日本の高校生よりまだピュアさが残っていてかわいかったです。また、それぞれのお店に置いてあるものの発音を、日本語のネイティブであるボランティアが発音し、生徒がそれに続いて発音するという練習をしたのですが、いつも英語の授業などでネイティブをまねる側であった私が、ネイティブ側になり、お手本になるというのがとても不思議で、貴重な体験でした。
 
Restaurant
3年目のクラスで行いました。このクラスは少人数で、3年目ということで単語も漢字もだいぶ読めていました。最後に生徒たちみんなでレストランに行きご飯を食べる実演をしたのですが、みんなそれぞれまったく違う食べ物を注文し、みんなが「おはしをください」と言う練習をしている中、自分が頼んだのはピザだから大丈夫、という子もいて、本当にアメリカの子たちは自分を持っているのだな、と実感しました。

私たちにとって当たり前の日本の習慣が、アメリカに住む高校生にとっては不思議な体験であるというのが見ていてよくわかりました。スクールバスの関係で朝早くからの授業ではありますが、普段は入ることのできないアメリカの高校におじゃまし、日本語を教える先生という立場から“ザ・異文化交流”をすることができ、またアメリカの生徒たちとふれあえ、今後得ることができないであろう、貴重な体験をすることができました。
